Franchi Seeds is the oldest family run seed company in the world, dating back to 1783, when Giovanni Franchi started selling seeds around the market squares of Parma. The company is now run by the 7th generation of the Franchi family!
Since then, the company has grown to offer more than 500 varieties of vegetable, herb and flower seeds from every region of Italy. Most seeds are heirloom varieties, locally producedÂ to ensure great flavour, and retainÂ the regionality ofÂ Italian produce and cuisine.
We have stocked Franchi Seeds for over a decade and theyÂ have a worldwide reputation for quality, ensuring high germination rates, vigorous plants and traditional varieties which produce delicious food! Their packets reflect this, with generous seed counts and full colour photographs of produce.
